Scratch Off Lottery Ticket

There is a certain kind of game to play
It states that you can win in any way
Scratch off the secret spot
Thinking you’ve won a lot
Disappointed, you lose every penny

    I prefer to pick my own numbers. That way, I can lose my way. Nearly all scratch-offs are losers from the start.
